Donnie Dies

Donnie Dies is a five-piece band conceived in Charlotte, NC. Initially started as an experimental outlet for original members Dries Vandenberg, Matt Zutell, and Aaron Utterback, the band quickly grew into a more serious endeavor. After a few years of refining their craft in Charlotte, Donnie Dies relocated to Boone, NC, and Charleston SC, continuing to play frequently in all three cities. Donnie Dies has recently begun to expand their reach across NC and into neighboring states.

Donnie Dies live performances are a fan interactive experience, boasting extended improvisational jams spanning from progressive rock to jazz, electronic, and funk. Above all, Donnie Dies aims to please its fans, bringing its own lightshow, crowd favorite covers, and the desire to get people dancing to every show.

Donnie Dies is:

Dries Vandenberg: Guitar/ Vocals
Mark Cichonski: Guitar/ Vocals
Paul Chelmis: Keyboards
Matt Zutell: Drums
Aaron Utterback: Bass
